The ink is still drying on the 2012 recruiting class, but in college football, and especially for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, there is no recruiting season. Brian Kelly and the staff are always looking for the next player to sign with the team.
As you can tell by taking one look at its roster, Notre Dame doesn't go after many in-state recruits
However, the Irish have nabbed quite a few stars from the Hoosier State. Tyler Eifert, Zack Martin and Braxton Cave have all been valuable contributors, and there are a number of hometown guys on the team that could step into the limelight soon.
It isn't realistic to think Notre Dame would grab five in-state players. Instead, Notre Dame looks to other states to fill its recruiting classes, but this year, there are players from Indiana the team should have no hesitation in going after.
